All Creatures Are Truly Special, Inc. is a non-profit, private, community supported rescue, NO KILL animal shelter located in Dahlonega, Georgia and Albertville, Alabama. We've been providing safe and clean living quarters for hundreds of animals since 1987. Currently we house about 200 animals .
We operate without government funds to help stray and abandoned dogs and cats residing in Dahlonega, the surrounding areas and even from outside the State of Georgia by:
- Providing care and shelter for homeless animals.
- Working to find them new, loving homes.
- Promoting responsible pet ownership in the Georgia and Alabama communities as well as on the Internet.
FACT: Did you know that over 3,000 dogs and cats born hourly in the United States and only 1 in 10 is likely to find a home; and the remaining nine are subject to all sorts of abuse and neglect?
It's for that reason that our no kill shelter exists. We realize that while the efforts of any one shelter are meager against such an enormous problem, we feel compelled to do our work on the basis that one lighted candle is still preferable to a cursed darkness.
